Instructions to authors: oral presentations

Each Contributed Oral is permitted 15 minutes. You should arrange your talk so that your presentation lasts 12-13 minutes, with 2-3 minutes available for questions.

Please remember that all oral presenters are required to submit an electronic version of their presentation by 6:00pm of the day prior to their presentation on site at the conference in Wroclaw. Presentations must be submitted in Microsoft Power Point 2003 as well as PDF format and should be turned in at the Speaker Preparation Room. It is strongly recommended that presenters save their Power Point presentations with True Type fonts. Acceptable media include CD and USB flash drive. All presentations will be scanned for any viruses and subsequently loaded on the appropriate computer for the following day's presentations.

Users of Office 2007: The computers in the oral presentation rooms will be running Office 2003. If your presentation was created in Office 2007, you will need to save your presentation in the Office 2003 format and make sure it runs correctly with Office 2003.

Macintosh computers will NOT be available in any of the session rooms. Authors using a Macintosh platform will need to ensure that their files operate compatibly in the PC environment.
